A Kentucky teen suspected in the shooting deaths of his parents and younger sister was killed Saturday morning in a shootout with police in Maryland.

Police said 16-year-old Jason Hendrix opened fire on officers, wounding one, in Baltimore County after he crashed during a pursuit.

Officers then fatally shot the teen, who police said was carrying with him a 9mm semiautomatic handgun, two .38-caliber pistols, a double-barreled shotgun and backpack “completely full of ammo.”

They contacted authorities in Corbin, Kentucky, during their investigation of the fatal shooting, and police went to the teen’s home and found the bodies of his parents, Kevin and Sarah Hendrix, and 12-year-old sister, Grace.

Police said all three were shot at least twice, and a pillow was used to muffle the gunshots and then left on each victim’s face.

Kevin Hendrix was still wearing his coat and tie from work, and police believe the teen ambushed his mother as she arrived home from teaching social work at Union College.

Investigators believe they were shot to death Wednesday, and authorities said Jason Hendrix then went to a church youth group meeting that evening and told friends he had found his father’s guns.

Police said the teen, a high school junior and ROTC cadet, was angry with his parents for taking away his computer privileges.

The pastor at the Forward Community Church attended by the family said Jason Hendrix, a fan of the movie “God’s Not Dead” and the book “Heaven Is For Real,” was baptized in December and helped set up equipment every Sunday morning for services.

“People want to ask questions,” said Drew Mahan, the founding pastor at the 3-year-old church. “Why? How? I simply looked at folks today and said, ‘I don’t know.’”

Nicolle Wallace blasts Trump’s fake ‘manliness’ for refusing to protect his key supporters

Published

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace blasted President Donald Trump for not caring about his staff much less "his own godd*mn supporters."

Speaking with conservative Charlie Sykes and Democratic strategist Basil Smikle, Wallace showed a new Lincoln Project ad with Sam Elliott about fathers and sons and what it means to be a "man of family and faith."

"Above all they taught us to own up to it when we did something wrong," the ad says before showing a video of Trump saying he doesn't accept responsibility for the failures of the coronavirus.

Here’s how Missouri’s GOP governor ignored warnings — and caught COVID himself

Published

on

Missouri Governor Mike Parson is one of the nation’s leading Donald Trump acolytes, right down to refusing to issue a statewide mandate to wear what he has termed “danged masks.”

Like Trump, Parson and his wife Teresa both contracted the COVID-19 virus, thankfully recovering, but only to emerge unbowed as if there was nothing to see here. He won’t consider mask mandates to this day, even as Missouri remains one of the top-spiking states in the nation.

Now, Parson’s Trump-worship has taken an even more pathetic turn. Like the boss man, it turns out he wasn’t about to be deterred by some snowflake concerns over a potential super-spreader setting.
